Officials Sworn In by Cherokee Nation
The Cherokee Nation swore in several newly elected officials on Sunday in front of hundreds in Tahlequah, Oklahoma.
Those sworn in were S. Joe Crittenden, acting principal chief, Meredith Frailey, acting deputy principal chief and eight members of the legislative branch.
“Although my tenure as Principal Chief may be brief, I have been entrusted with the momentous responsibilities of this office,” said Crittenden. “I vow to always do the right thing for the right reason.”
